An Alisa Review: Alpha Dragon: Bronaz by Kellan Larkin and Kaz Crowley

Standard

Rating:  3.5 stars out of 5

Bronaz has a family in his best friends at Treasured Ink, the dragon-owned tattoo shop, and a job he loves. But since his twin brother’s death years ago, he’s been reluctant to open himself to anyone—which is hard when he meets his fated mate.

Omega Kuras wants to meet his fated mate and have a baby more than anything. But time is running out, and dating apps aren’t any help. When he meets Bronaz, he’s overjoyed. But what if Bronaz doesn’t feel the same way?

Meanwhile, the dragons of Treasured Ink investigate a dangerous organization targeting mythical shifters. After a friend’s sister is kidnapped by the organization, Bronaz vows to find her—so his friend doesn’t suffer the same fate he did.

As Kuras pushes, Bronaz pulls. Bronaz realizes he can’t ignore the bond pulling them together, but he can’t get hurt again. That’s what love brings. But Kuras is determined to show him love can bring healing too—and that it’s worth everything.

The two have to learn to work together if they’re going to be fated mates. But can Kuras help heal Bronaz’s heart? And will they find the kidnapped shifter before it’s too late?

Kuras spends his days helping pregnant humans and omegas adjust to their pregnancies all while dreaming of his own someday.  Bronaz doesn’t seem to want to make up his mind about their mating and pulls Kuras close just to push him away later.

In this book we go deeper into the mystery that began in the first book and even find some more about the people causing trouble but there is more to be done to fix the problems.  This book had the alpha doing the push and pull instead of the omega like the last book.  I just can’t help but feel like there is something missing from the stories and they end right after the characters fulfill their mating, there just isn’t much about them actually working through their relationship past accepting the mating.

The cover art is nice and continues to follow the pattern for the series.

An Alisa Review: Alpha Dragon: Nyve by Kellan Larkin and Kaz Crowley

Standard

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

 

As an older dragon, Nyve’s been waiting years for his fated mate. He just didn’t think he’d be so… young. Austin is the breath of fresh air the alpha dragon needs, but Nyve can’t help but worry about the age gap.

 

Austin feels stifled by his overprotective aunt, who took him in after his mother died mysteriously. As a half dragon, half wolf shifter, he’s never felt like he’s fit into either world. But he misses his mom—and meets his fated mate when getting a tattoo to remember her.

 

As Austin strives for independence while also learning to accept his mate, the guys at Treasured Ink learn more about a mysterious organization with a sinister motive attacking mythical shifters.

 

And it seems like Austin’s distant father might be involved.

 

It’s up to the dragons to get to the bottom of this—before someone they love gets hurt. And in the midst of it all, Nyve struggles to give his young mate the space he needs, while controlling his fear that he’ll lose the one thing he’s been waiting his whole life for.

 

Austin has lived a sheltered life under his aunt’s watchful eye.  When he meets Nyve their time together finally gives him the courage to take steps to make his life his own.  Nyve is willing to wait for Austin but has trouble with Austin’s yo-yoing actions, they are happy together in the end but no nice conclusion for their relationship.

 

The book left the mystery form the first book still open ended so presumably once we get to the last guy in the shop we may find out everything.  Much more was found out about the muggings and the group they are connected to and it connects back to Austin’s father.  I was confused as his aunt’s reactions but hope that will come out in a later book.  If I had known this was a serial type storyline I’m not sure I would have gotten started but I’ll probably continue as I want to know what will happen in the end.

 

The cover art is nice and follows the pattern for the series.
